The first phase of the Parkside redevelopment is the replacement of an abandoned YMCA facility in a Hispanic neighborhood in Lexington, Kentucky, with new housing, commercial space and a community center. Phase one is a 36 unit apartment complex, including some fully ADA compliant units. The commercial spaces bring a level of activation to the ground floor while the Community Center provides public meeting and vocational training spaces. Also included in the project is the buildout of one commercial space for the Sunshine Kids, a service that provides supervised visitation for court-ordered visits with non-custodial parents. The second commercial space houses a community outreach office for the Bluegrass Domestic Violence Program - a service provider for prevention and intervention services which provides counseling, support groups and a healing shelter program.
